to lead a group calling itself the agenda progress paul ryan but according to a trust was the killer ignore the fact the plan would not affect people currently on medicare or even the people 55 to 65 who joined the program in the next ten years to be as opposed to the source on the street the american doctors for truth says president obama is rationing health care voting to cut the budget. >> president obama is again throwing seniors off the cliff when they voted to cut the budget by $575 billion. >> another trusted source said this piece of information that the reduction in the future growth of spending over ten years, not in the current budget. that is one they put together the agenda project, the american doctors for truth, the true anonymous groups to. is it obama, is of ryan? not on your life. these were killed by deception and a cliff. >> the next condition the next slide, please come is what participants saw. this was taken from the fact checker where we combine the two stories to kind of come alone with a stand alone. these are the final conditions that controlled conditions
before you get into office. on the other side we all know paul ryan can do the math and he can spend the whole 90 minutes talking about -- >> of course paul ryan isn't the candidate for president. >> paul ryan will get his chance. >> if you endorsed budget, please explain to us how that works. >> well, at least there's a budget. >> he was for and then against it. >> so how should romney answer? our debate all this week has been your argument is he should avoid substance at all costs. so how should romney answer her question then? >> the good news is that the rules don't allow him to speak more than a few seconds. >> actually, two minutes i think. >> so move on to the next issue, the next issue. we're looking for details. you are not going to get details tonight. >> let's be clear, there's 15-minute segments. they have two minutes to respond to the question and then jim lehrer's going to narrate the back and forth. there should be enough time. >> one thing i want to say though is that this is going to be for a bunch of young americans their first chance to vote. a lot of the young ame
. whoever is budget director, paul ryan as vice president, and whoever is the treasury secretary, i would guess twice a day at the white house meeting with senior white house staff. then there would be the rest of the obama administration were i would hope that would be -- a whole bunch of other things could be done in departments that need to be improved from a policy point of view. my sense is that the romney people are very focused on that first six-nine months. if i were advising romney, i would say put them all at the white house, omb, and treasury at the beginning. they need the best, most experienced people to really make those decisions early and to work with congress. i would get a couple people who have served our are very familiar with congress. obviously cannot just dictate to congress. they will need to make that step happen very fast. a very strong white house chief of staff and budget director. it was impressive what they did. being able to get that stuff through, we look at history in retrospect, the fact that reagan did it was pretty startling. >> governor romney is also
by mitt romney and paul ryan. joining us now is congressman peter welsh, who joins us frequently on "varney & company." welcome back, good to see you. >> good to be here. i'm sure we're going to agree that the middle class has indeed been buried. income down about $4,000 in the the last four years for middle america. i say it's because of the pills of stimulus, a massive government spending, and heavy regulation simply has not produced a robust economy which would raise the middle glass. it's subdued the middle class. what's your explanation. >> well, i mean, that's the debate between governor romney and president obama. i mean, you're right. and that's the middle class is really struggling. something that's been true really for 30 years, when you look past what's happened in the middle class the last 30 years, it's basically treading water and it's gotten much tougher in the past four years, and this big debate between the two sides is whether it was, the bush policies, that preceded that president obama that was a major contributing factor or is-- a the romney campaign is tryin
politician in the country. very classy. nominees are allen west, michelle bachman and paul ryan. all of them should be very proud that they have annoyed their opponents so much. check 4, speaking today at the clinton global initiative, mitt romney said this. >> if there is one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. all i got to do now is wait a couple of days for that bounce to happen. >> bill: president clinton actually praised the governor in the introduction. that's what we like to see, a little detante now and then. finally, check five, there is chaos in the national football league because the referees are being locked out by the league in a wage dispute. and the substitute refs are having a hard time, to say the least. >> the packers play at the goal line. as wilson scrambles to keep it alive. the game's time play is a wilson lob to the end zone, which is -- simultaneous who has it? who do they give it to? touchdown! >> bill: well, it really wasn't a touchdown because the seattle receiver illegally p
-- >> i think everybody will stipulate to that. the deal is, this guy, we can't find paul ryan on the campaign trail. >> i disagree. at that ron is connecting and rain is connecting. they're generating huge crowds. the only reason people say he is not connecting is because the left-wing media is telling you he's of connecting. that's not true. >> i'm disappointed in some of the romney messaging. when he came out in that ad and said he was talking about the middle class and now obamacare is about the middle-class, i thought that was a misstep. it barack obamacare about the middle class would not be raising taxes. i feel like now is the time were you need to really hit obama strong, foreign policy, economic policy, with respect to benghazi. these are all missteps. i want to see a tougher, stronger. lou: well -- >> of victim of a right wing of his own party. a republican can be a credible national candid as long as they put together an economic problem it can cause a fraud. [talking over each other] lou: why is the white house, this president, covering about happened in benghazi a
to hand out check, try and take him away eventually like paul ryan to get us back on path to fiscal sanity, that is what can happen here. >> bob: do you have relatives left in greece? >> andrea: i have a whole family in greece. it spent so much time there. it's very, very serious. i have a lot of friends in athens. none of them can find work. they're all leaving. my family is suffering. it's a serious problem. people who haven't been to greece don't know. >> bob: feel bad enough. >> andrea: sorry, bob. >> greg: my banned word -- "game-changer." >> kimberly: oh, no! >> greg: when anybody says it's a game-changer, it's never a game-changer. >> bob: you did that once. >> greg: no, i didn't. >> bob: in my memory. >> greg: i keep a ror of everything i do. >> bob: you do? >> greg: then i eat it. >> kimberly: i like game-changer. usually i think it's applicable. >> andrea: bob's tattoo removal strategy will be a game-changer. >> bob: people will thank me for doing that. >> eric: got to go. that's it for "the five." thank you for watching. see you tomorrow, everybody. captioned by closed captionin
never seen anything where paul ryan and barack obama agreed. >> rick: and we have wisconsin governor scott walker famous for being outset unions coming out in favor of the referee union. >> absolutely. wonderful field day for cartoonists. cartoons for referees that have no memory or let somebody else try it. it's a great cartoon. no debate here. >> is that political pandering all these politicians and rallying around a no-brainer cause? >> it seems like no-brainer but i never pretend anything that relates to sports. >> rick: oh, come on. >> let's pick up on that. "time magazine" called it pander bowl. there is something good that came out of this. i think we ought to consider replacement journalists. [ laughter ] >> anchors that three networks. "new york times" and "washington post" and get replacements and do better. >> we already have them, they are called blogers. >> you are seeing the power of social media. >> this in some measure a tweet driven story. everybody jumped in and they chose one particular medium to do it. >> rick: it demonstrates there is so much more that unites us?
for the contrast we're going to hear tomorrow. >> campaigning in iowa, running mate paul ryan asked about the confession that 47% who don't pay income taxes think government owes them. >> get them a job so they're good taxpayers. >> we don't want a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we added 50 million people to food stamp rolls in the last four years because there is no opportunity, no economic growth. >> in the debate, romney is sure to be asked what is now shorthanded as his 47% remarks. he previewed his explanation to denver fox affiliate. >> i'm a president for 100% of the american people. that is the real percent people care about. not 99% versus 1%. not 47%. i'm president for 100% of the people and demonstrated that throughout my life. >> within hours of the vice president remark in the state of the middle class in four years, ryan took him to task. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, "buried." we agree. they're being buried by regulations, buried by taxes. buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama adm
nominee paul ryan seizing onnthe commission to launch attacks at the democratic ticket. >> feature if you turn on the ty you can see that the obama foreign-policy is unraveling before our eyes. it's not just an isolated incident where we lost four americans in libya. that's tragic. but it is part of a bigger story of the unraveling of this agenda all over the world. we have distanced our ally, israel, we are not advancing our interests in the middle east, and the president is promising we will have these devastating cuts to our national defense. ashley: meanwhile the white house engaged in a series of secret talks on the attack on al qaeda. it included the possibility of unilateral military action against al qaeda in the region. yet still american diplomats on the ground in libya denied additional security to ensure their safety. we take up all this right here tonight, we have retired lieutenant colonel, and also, moody's chief economist on why wall street might not care who wins this election. america's security and the obama administration's handling of foreign affairs quickly becoming
, i'm not familiar with it. you also had paul ryan who in his abortion bill, anti-abortion bill basically had the term forcible rape. you had a series of things that have knocked it down to the benefit of the republican -- >> bill: how big -- the country is divided, it's almost more people are pro-life than pro choice. it's like 52-48, according to the latest poll. among just women, do you know what the stat is? >> i don't know the specific stat. but die know without making the sweeping generalization, a lot of women do tend to be single issue voters. at least in the past. the economy is really changed that. >> bill: it's hurting everybody. >> but there are still a significant amount of women who tend to vote single issue on the abortion issue. and that's why traditionally -- >> bill: do they vote the other way, pro-life? >> there are a lot of men in particular who happen to be pro-life. >> bill: i don't know how much -- >> traditionally, the democrats have enjoyed a lead among women because unmarried women tend to be more dependent on the government. >> bill: here is what i car
. after that romney will travel to boston where he will join paul ryan for another round of fundraising. >>> the polls give a sense of which way people are voting but it is social media that will indicate which candidate they're really talking about and cnn has new data provided exclusively by fb auto. it says people are mentioning mitt romney more on facebook in 41 of the 50 states. you see them in red there. of course that can be misleading. president obama is leading in nine states. those are the ones in blue. those are all considered swing states by cnn. romney's staff said he is focusing on using social media to drum up support. i am sure the other side says that, too. it is not just facebook. youtube, yahoo! even xbox planning to get in on the political action. allison is following that from the new york stock exchange. >> it is the dawn of a new era in the land of presidential debates as well with an emphasis on how to use social media to get everybody involved. what's happening now is the presidential debate commission is working with aol, yahoo! and google through youtube and w
. >> david, there's a debate emerging now on whether paul ryan, the vice presidential nominee, has actually helped romney's effortso wi white house or wound up hurting romney's efforts to win the white house. where do you see it? >> well, i've been a big alarmist on the ryan question from the beginning. i thought it was a mistake to choose him. i thought it was a mistake even before choosing him to bolt this campaign to the ryan plan. the y campaign needs to be about jobs and growth. the decision to make this campaign about medicare and medicaid which is what you do when you adopt the ryan plan much less put ryan on the ticket is a big mistake. i think the campaign is really suffering for it. >> you think democrats down ballot as they say, senatorial candidates, congressional candidates, are happy, donna, that paul ryan is on the ticket with romney? >> absolutely. he gives definition to what the republicans actually stand for. i mean, basically they want to, you know, create another system for medicare. and as president obama and the vice president today spoke out also about social security
in the wake of paul ryan's vp selection. and the floor policy -- there was a spike and mitt romney went abroad -- the foreign policy, there was a spike when mitt romney went abroad. i believe aj invited us here and our job is to keep everyone here on the panel on this. >> think you're a very interesting. as our panelists make their presentation, maybe it least two items i thought would be interested to adjust -- the very interesting article and book out now by sasha eisenberg about the fact that the press cannot keep up with political consultants and social that parking experts. reporters basically are way behind the curve in this campaign. we think that is an interesting topic to take a look at. as well as the fact that in a wave of reporters, my impression is it looks like both candidates have succeeded for the most part in talking over the press, especially the traveling press, and making them almost irrelevant to the campaign. let us start off with amy davidson. >> can everybody hear me? i will start by addressing what he does talk about a little bit. even in the title of the panel, is thi
. and then the response from his challenger, the vice-presidential candidate, paul ryan. take a listen. >> all kidding aside, with all the boos, we can stop all the malarkey, this is deadly ernest, man. this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> vice president biden just today, said that the middle class over the last four years has been quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states! [cheers and applause] gregg: republicans didn't waste anytime trying to utilize the biden remark, did they? >> we'll be hearing a lot about that over the next couple weeks. and i can assure you the white house wishes they could reverse time and get biden to say something, anything different from that. but you know, for those us in the press that is the nice thing about joe biden. he is always sort of ad-libbing and giving us great things to write about. gregg: that updates the biden gaffe clock that the rnc always run on their website. paul rya
, congressional candidates, are happy, donna, that paul ryan is on the ticket with romney? >> absolutely. he gives definition to what the republicans actually stand for. i mean, basically they want to, you know, create another system for medicare. and as president obama and the vice president today spoke out also about social security. so democrats are along the ryan budget plan. by putting him on the ticket i think the republicans took a huge risk because they have to explain exactly what his budget would do to domestic program and future growth. and of course many people understand that the ryan plan it doesn't add up. the math is just not there. >> i looked, david, at the president's schedule today, president obama's schedule. he's here in washington, d.c. 9:45 he received a presidential daily brief, met with senior advisors at 10:15. 4:20, which now he's out there on the campaign trail. he's got an efbt at 4:20, 6:05, another campaign fund raising event, one at 8:25 tonight. but he had until 4:00 basically he was in the white house, as you know, benjamin netanyahu's been in new york all day. i
governor romney, send paul ryan, send more tv ad money, you could send them into those two states, right? kou try to essentially carpet bomb those two states. as you noted, polling also shows him down in virginia. polling also shows him brand new today down in iowa, shows him down in nevada, shows him down in wisconsin. it's a dead heat in colorado and a dead heat in new hampshire. when you have all this ground to cover, you don't have the time and resources. six weeks is a lot of time, but you can't change so many different states. what does he need? a national shift in the dynamic, especially on the question you just mentioned to gloria, who would best handle the economy. if governor romney can't change that, especially in that big first debate, he's in trouble. >> it's interesting, gloria, there's a lot of talk of obama's approval ratings, how 9 of 13 national polls conducted this month have shown him cracking 50% approval. how important of an indicator is that? >> it's a huge deal for him, because history shows us, modern history shows us that when you're running for re-election, unl
admission that the middle-class has been hurt by the obama administration's policies. congressman paul ryan pounced. >> of course the middle-class has been buried, buried by regulations, buried by taxes, buried by borrowing, they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> biden later tried to dig himself out. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and the ryan supported. >> reporter: except for debate prep, a politics-free day for contenders. romney had lunch at chipotle. president obama paid a visit to the hoover dam. both have spent hours in debate sessions and both have challenges. aide say the president is working on keeping his answers short to not sound like professor obama. in order to win over undecided voters, romney needs to appear relatable and offer specifics on his agenda. >> he has to find something more than just discussing how bad the economy is or blaming the president for how much the economy continues to struggle. >> reporter: all the prep works come done to just 90 minutes. both candidates, one stage in a high-stakes showdown. k
go bankrupt and then took credit for managing bankruptcy and then picked paul ryan as his running mate who was for the bailout. that's a consistent theme that romney doesn't have the right message. they do think they're losing. they do think because they have a strong ground game there there is still time to turn around. >> you make your point in the article that a lot of people think this thing will tighten as we get closer to election day. >> right. >> the other thing though is governor john kasich who had been promoting the ohio economic recovery even though he's a republican and trying to get mitt romney elected. romney of course has been talking down the economy because that's good for him. let's talk about that. >> yeah. that's a major complication. jim mengsed in his piece. the unemployment rate in ohio is 7.1%, in columbus it's about 6%. that's a bellwether area. stop after stop john kasich goes around the state and says ohio is booming, ohio is rocking. that gives headaches to people in washington saying hey, this conflicts with our message. there's ongoing friction and t
it to president obama? that is a question that congressman paul ryan got yesterday at a town hall in fort collins, colorado. a woman stood up and said, look, i was worried about the performance that john mccain put in four years ago against president obama, and she picks up the question from there. >> will he be forceful in those debates and take it to obama? [cheers and applause] >> ma'am, absolutely. one little difference between then and now. president obama has a record. [laughter] and president obama has a record and a string of broken promises. of course he will. >> reporter: congressman ryan -- sorry -- [cheers and applause] pledging that governor romney will take it to the president next wednesday in denver. no question though, jon, he needs a big move because if you see these polls in the battleground states, he is beginning to lose ground. he needs something big to happen. jon: well, they seem to like the message in the room behind him, is it the vfw hall? >> reporter: yes, it's a legion hall in springfield. jon: legion hall. john roberts, thank you. jenna: the first presidential debate
with. and that's going to be very much mike levin, chief of white house staff, paul ryan as vice president who knows a heck of a lot about this and whoever is the treasury secretary meeting twice a day i would guess at the white house at 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with senior white house staff and maybe the hhs secretary needs to be in as many. and everyone else is getting their asses and sectors confront a getting to know the authorizing committees on the. than the rest of the romney administration were hoping would move to more of a modernizing government and a whole bunch of other things that could be done in a bunch of departments which we need to be approved. but i do think at least my sense is the romney people and i think you're right about this, very focused on the first six, nine months. if you want to do that you do need a extremist on white house and omb control. if i were advising romney i would say here are my best a people, put them all in the white house, only be and treasury at the beginning. they need the best most expense people who, you know, to really make those decisio
break, talk presidential politics and what paul ryan says about the romney/ryan tax plan. chools in e world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. mike rowe here at a ford tell me fiona, who's having a big tire event? your ford dealer. who has 11 major brands to choose from? your ford dealer. who's offering a rebate? your ford dealer. who has the low price tire guarantee... affording peace of mind to anyone who might be in the market for a new set of tires? your ford dealer. i'm beginning to sense a pattern. buy four select tires, get a $60 rebate. use the ford service credit credit card, get $60 more. that's up to $120. where did you get that sweater vest? your ford dealer. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at schwab, we're committed to offering you tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 low-cost investment options-- tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like
from romney before. we certainly heard it when they rolled out paul ryan, the number one deficit hawk in the house. we've heard this before. the question for romney is, will he stick? will he stay there, and will he continue to prosecute president obama's record and policies in a more robust way? because in the past what he's done is tried the tough new tone and not stayed there. megyn: well, he's taking it a step farther, right? it's not just about his policies, but it's about his ideology and an argument that he sees the world differently than mitt romney sees the world and, you know, there was that tape earlier, the 1998 tape of barack obama and talking about redistribution, and, you know, we've heard comments like that from the president before, and both men seem to agree that they have very different ideologies, but romney hasn't really gone after the president on that ground so strongly. republicans are going to respond to that, chris. but will, will independents, and have independents really heard a lot about that message thus far in this campaign? >> no. and think about this,
as the best republican nominee. he had a very republican primary and representative paul ryan nominated for the vv come see you have this it seems like suddenly wisconsin was back in the republican column or possibly in the republican column. >> and abby livingston, is denied the first debate and only debate or is there a series? >> i don't know off the top of my head, but it is going to be an interesting evening because governor thompson is a statewide brand known and not as governor thompson, but tommy and he's going to be seeking to label the representative baldwin as a liberal. that is the latest, the liberal for nancy pelosi, and she is one of several members of congress who is from the single district trying to run statewide is she's going to define herself in a positive way and definitely going to define her negatively. >> that the date will be live from wisconsin. we will broadcast it live on c-span, 9 p.m. eastern time. tommy thompson and tammy baldwin. did the leaders and top down economics. they basically think if we spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts that favor the very w
completely partisan rhetoric, calling paul ryan to beat up on him in public, accusing doctors of wanting to grab people and cut their tonsils out, and if you liked your health insurance, you could keep it, and if you like your doctor, you can keep them, that's been broken. calling on republicans to have dirty air and dirty water. that's not consistent with our values. all we have to do is remind people we don't want four more years of chicago style politics, and what happens if he's relegislated and he's not even restrained by the prospect of the re-election campaign? if that happens, the hhs regulation, recess appointments when the senate is not in, executive order, setting aside law and creates a new work permit without the dream act kids. whether or not you're for or against it, he act contrary to law. he's acted in a wreckless way. i don't know what the next four years would be. we have to remind people about that. i'm an optimist. i think we're going to win, win the senate as well, whether it's connie mack in florida or george allen in virginia or josh mandell in ohio where senate s
's a choice not a referendum. i'm going up to new hampshire today we'll be on the campaign trail with paul ryan. we'll talk to him about campaign debate strategy, foreign policy, which i think the romney calm is about to make a big, new push on as there are growing questions about what the president knew and when he knew it about the raid in benghazi that killed the four americans and also about the state of the economy. martha: thank you, chris. that will be really interesting. we are all looking forward to the debates and coverage. it's an important night for both candidates. in particular looking at these polls for mitt romney. thank you, chris, see you soon. bill: it's almost a two-front battle right now, the economic and foreign policy. governor romney campaigning in pennsylvania today, a state that went for mitt romney. he scored big there four years ago. are the polls tightening? john roberts is live in pennsylvania. >> he's here at the valley forge military academy which you may know is general norman schwartz coff's alma mater. here in pennsylvania 40,000 jobs may be on the line i
class and cut taxes for wealthy americans. a fox business exclusive republican candidate paul ryan says wealthy americans like mitt romney will pay more. >> here's how it works. higher income people can use lots of tax shelters to shelter their income from taxation. close those tax shelters and more income is subject to taxation which allow us to lower tax rates for everybody. rich: some families and businesses will pay more because there will be fewer deductions. others will pay less with lower rates and in theory it balances out. for who is paying more or less we don't have those details from the romney campaign. they refuse to say how much the deductions they have to curb or even many to accomplish their goal. a senate source tells us the supercommittee discussed a rate cut and preliminary assumption show the cost of $1 trillion over ten years. congress has not officially run those numbers. as for what congress may consider eliminating the most popular individual deductions are exemptions for the cost of workers' health plans. interest on home mortgages, retirement plans and state an

nominee. he had a very repel competitive primary. we have representative paul ryan nominated for the vp. so it seems like suddenly wisconsin is back in the republican column. >> abby lingstron is tonight the only series? >> i don't know that of the top of my head but it's meant to be an interesting evening because governor thompson is a state wide brand. he's known not as governor thompson, but tommy and he is going to be speaking to the legal government representative baldwin as a liberal. that is what has made him too liberal for nancy pelosi coming and she is one of several members of congress who is from a single district trying to run statewide but she is going to try to define herself in a positive we come in and he is going to define her negatively. >> that debate will be live from wisconsin. we will broadcast it live at c-span 9 p.m. central time. tommy thompson and tammy baldwin in their debate and there is another that we will be carrying live and that will be noon eastern time. nebraska, give an update to their if you would. .. most recent polls show this is falling out of de
is democrat and who was republican. you had mayor rahm emanuel, mitt romney and paul ryan were congratulating him. sometimes the democrats and republicans in washington are often more unified than is portrayed. the majority of this people are often the silent majority. you just don't hear them in means -- in mainstream media. host: recall from virginia on our line for independents. caller: good morning. guest: hi. caller: i am harold johnson from richmond, virginia. host: go ahead with your question or comment. caller: ms. goodman, thank you so much what to do for this country. let me ask you a quick question -- when you become a congressman or house of representatives, you take an oath of office to serve this country. yet, you take another oath from grover norquist saying that you will never raise taxes. i thought we are represented by one constitution and not two constitutions. how can he get away with if you not voted republican in not raising taxes, how does he get away with that? guest: people don't have power but others be so that with power. i think there is a force more power than an
romney. one of the things he said is, america needs a comeback team. mitt romney and paul ryan are that team. thank you, john elway for that quote. >> gretchen: coming up on "fox & friends," they fight for your right to vote. military voting appears to be way down. is the government making it too hard for them to vote? we're going to get to the bottom of it next. >> brian: then, bet you've never seen this before. cops chasing a drunk guy on a horse. >> steve: wait a minute. the drunk guy is on the horse? >> brian: $3 million, that's how much money attorneys for whistle blowers donated to the president's reelection campaign as the obama administration cracks down on corporate fraud. they're reaping multi million dollar rewards. next, $5.6 billion. that's the latest payment the postal service failed to pay. the agency now expects it lost $15 billion in the last fiscal year. but says service will not be interrupted. i still like the peel off stamps. $6.1 million. that's how much taxpayers paid for a pair of g8 conferences last year. one of the officials resigning in wake of a scan
opponent's plan for medicare, while at wong man's paul ryan's event in iowa today things took an emotional term when a veteran asked him about his social security benefits and why the government taxes the only source of income for a man who dedicated his life to defending his country. >> i served in the air force in 65 straight out of high school, and i learned in the military -- [applause] >> -- the skills that i had to take me through life. i served in grenada, and i served in iran, and i live off of social security. i live off a thousand dollars a month, and i cannot understand why this country that i gave my life for feels that they should tax me twice for social security. they already taxed me for that and they take a third of it back when they give me that check. >> you know i'm glad you brought that up, sir. [applause] >> now, there is a tax on social security benefits he's talking about. i voted consistently to repeal that tax because you know what you already paid for this. it's your benefit, you already paid tax on this money once before, number two, it's funny how joe biden and
. >> steve: he did. >> brian: the other thing is the president had to get prepared for the debate. paul ryan and joe biden had to carry their weight. it didn't really work too well. >> steve: you know how mitt romney prepared yesterday out in denver for the debate. he had the burrito bowl at chipotle. >> brian: right. >> steve: he said he usually goes with a burrito, but yesterday. >> martha: burrito bowl. let's get a look at some headlines this morning. there are concerns today that the obama administration may be looking to move some of the gitmo detainees to american soil. the federal government plans to buy the thompson correctional center in illinois. at one point this prison was considered for housing gitmo detainees and there was a huge controversy based around that. many lawmakers outraged saying it would open the door for ultimately carrying out a gitmo transfer. house speaker john boehner said this, the unilateral decision to purchase the thompson prison, even though congress repeatedly opposed the obama administration's effort to use the taxpayer funds to do so, underscores the ad
save the federal budget a lot of money. vice president -- vice- presidential candidate paul ryan has a plan to turn it into a voucher type program. i guess i'd like to hear specifically each of your vigs for the future of medicare. >> well, thank you for that question, lisa. i've already mentioned the fact that i got to see the difference that medicare makes in people's lives at a much earlier age than most do because i was raised by my grandparents. and my grandmother was on medicare by the time i was in my late teens. this is something that i regard as more than a program but a promise an one that we must keep. my opponent supports a plan to end medicare as we know it, to instead give seniors vouchers that outside, nonpartisan analysts have said will encrease out of pocket expenses for seniors over the first decade up to $6,000. and i know very few wisconsin seniors who can afford that sort of burden. we need to continue what we did in the affordable care act that extended medicare's solvency by nearly a decade. >> governor thompson. >> it's amazing to me that she has the audacity
now saying it's the patriotic thing to do. look at our debt, is it? paul ryan saying no, it's notment, but will his plan solve the crisis? we're going to debate it. saving our kids and taxpayers moan by making high school two years? one state is doing it. some here saying it's an a-plus plan if the nation does it, too. the cost of freedom at the top of the hour. why should our wallets tell us what our favorite color is? every room deserves to look great. and every footstep should tell us we made the right decision. so when we can feel our way through the newest, softest, and most colorful options... ...across every possible price range... ...our budgets won't be picking the style. we will. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. right now get $37 basic installation on all special order carpet. made gluten-free cereals in a bunch of yummy flavors. like cinnamon chex, honey nut chex, and chocolate chex... we're inereal heaven. so thanks. from the mcgregors, 'cause we love chex. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit.

support. ron wyden came to me before he went to vice-presidential nominee paul ryan in terms of his approach. unfortunately, i was totally involved on some issues dealing with anti-terrorism so i could not to deal with the specific one. but i probably have as many piece of red -- of legislation that is bipartisan and any member of congress. the idea of no budget/no pay, how about the idea of new budget/no job. i put my budget on print and have not seen any budget that you put on line. dianne feinstein has not voted for a budget in the last 2000 days. >> did you vote for the budgets during the democrat rain in the house? >> i voted for the alternatives. >> this one is for dan lundgren. >> let's go back to health care. the affordable care act, which to support the repeal? california and other states are already moving forward with a lot of the provisions, including the health benefit exchange, the online insurance marketplace. how should the government handle states like california who are moving in this direction, getting people lined up for medicaid expansion with the expectation th
-- for one thing she's trying to tell heller paul ryan's budget plan. they like to say heller voted for the budget plan twice, once in congress and once in the senate but he was appointed to the senate last year when senator john ensign resigned. so he voted for it twice in the ryan should come out tonight looking for her to say something along the lines of dean heller wants to end medicare as we know it and turn it into a voucher program and basically try to tie him to that. you've also seen heller running a little bit and with romney's comments about the 47%, we saw how he distance himself from that saying that is and how he viewed the world. so he makes it come up as well. they will also likely bring up the treen act that's a pretty big deal in nevada and in the latino population. she has tried to make that an issuer and he has also tried to reach out to latino voters in the house and others ways of outreach. >> when it comes to looking at the polling or at least what suggested as far as this race is concerned, what is the story in nevada? >> for the polling, basically, you know,
